When you get a new dog, you want to give them the perfect name. For one thing, you’re going to be saying it all the time. Not only that, but there’s a science to choosing the right name. And most importantly, your dog is a big part of your life, so their name needs to be big, too.
Tough dog names are perfect for dogs that have survived a hard past, dogs with big personalities, or just dogs that have energy to spare. There are names for dogs that have that strong and gentle side.
If you’re looking for a name that stands out from the pack, you’re in luck. We’ve handpicked some great tough dog names through a combination of outside research and digging through our Rover.com database of dog names. Many of these names are unique, while others show up on the list of the UK’s top 100 dog names.
Tough dog names, powerful dog names, strong dog names, even badass dog names: call them what you will, all the names on this list pack a punch. They’ve also got a certain flair, so they stand out from the pack at the dog park. Have fun, use your imagination, and be sure to check out other ideas from our unique selection of dog name lists.
